158 Vicksburg Employees Cut As Anderson-Tully Plant Closes

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — 158 Vicksburg workers will soon be out of a job after the local Anderson-Tully Lumber Co. was sold this week. The move was announced in a Friday press-release which said the closing is expected to complete on May 15th. It is not clear how many of the current workers, if any, will be rehired as the new owners take over. A letter from the company to the Mississippi Department of Employment Security and local officials announcing the mass layoffs said the company will “permanently discharge all company employees working at the sawmill from their employment with the company.” adding that all positions and jobs at the sawmill will be affected, although some employees may be offered employment by the purchaser. Anderson-Tully has been operating in Vicksburg since 1889.
